Master Bedroom Room Make-Over

Our kids went to stay with Gram and Grandpa over the fourth of July for FIVE days!  The week to weekend went a little different than I thought.  I thought I was going to get the basement cleaned, our desk cleaned and the house, top to bottom. 

Instead, we eradicated this {color} mess, not the boy.  He's not a mess. 

Duvet matched the curtains.

The walls were supposed to be a brown/gold color but really, it was just yellow. 
We lived with that for way too many years. 

We lived with the yellow walls because really, what difference did it make with inherited green carpet?

I didn't even bother with before pictures.
We had hoped to finish our room and the other bedrooms before Spring but after I broke my leg everything was pushed back.  We aren't quite finished with the rooms.  New windows and doors are coming any day and then we'll finish the trim and window treatments.   Unfortunately, this will be a few months off since this side of the house will have siding last.  In all honesty, that's just fine because the road side of the house needs to be finished first!  I should show you that as it looks now!
The crucifix still needs to be hung and I can't find our wedding picture but here's the almost final look. 

The night stands were my Grandpa's.  They are too short but they look better than what we had before. 
I think I might have to do something more white for a lampshade.

I really wanted to paint the dressers white but Adam said no way. 
His Mom re-finished these and actually I do like them the color they are in the room.

New door and trim coming soon. 
We also switched out all the off white switch plates, huge difference.

That's one of the re-models, I'll post the other bedrooms soon. 
That was our fourth of July week and putting it all back together earlier this week. 
I am blessed to have such a hard working husband.  We did all this instead of party it up on the 4th of July.

  1. So glad I "found" you again! The room is beautiful, I love the wall color. How did you break your leg? I am off to read the older posts to find the answer to that question. Also love your photography. I am trying to learn all those settings myself.

    Hoping to make a quick trip to GR to see Patti later this month. May even make it to Tall Timber Days!

    1. Hi Linda,

      I’m glad you found me again too....not sure what happened there? I was off fb for a few months....maybe something happened?

      I slipped on the ice leaving Mass in December. All in all....I was pretty lucky I didn’t need surgery and for my age, I think I recovered pretty well. 😊

      Maybe we’ll see you in GR!

  2. Wow, you did a nice job! I love the hand print pillows. And your wall color. What a nice dreamy color.

    1. Thanks Madeline! My husband did most of the work....I did all the shopping and cleaning. :)

  3. Gorgeous!! I love seeing room remodels - it gives me ideas for mine! :-)

    1. It's always fun to look at what other people do isn't it? I get all my ideas from other people!

  4. I love it! Well done! And so sorry, but I actually love yellow walls! Everybody seems to hate them, and I had no less than three shades of yellow in the home we painted (and I chose.) Oh well, your room looks beautiful.

    1. I hope I didn't offend you Rebekah! I think the yellow didn't work with the green carpet and the unfinished trim?


Thanks for making my day!
